Meri Brown was born on 16th January 1971. Her birth name is Meri Caroline Barber. She was born in Alameda, California to William James and Bonnie Barber. Meri’s father was a polygamist and had 5 wives. That is the reason Meri has 25 siblings! Meri is a spiritual person and is also a surprising and mysterious personality. She married Kody Brown in 1990. Kody at that time had 3 other wives. Although Meri and Kody had married legally they happened to say that they are married spiritually. And after their divorce in 2014, they still claim that they are married spiritually.
Meri and Kody have a daughter together, Mariah Lian. Meri was living a common life but with uncommon circumstances. However, this all changed with the starring of TLC’s reality show “Sister wives” in 2010. The show’s main cast was Kody Brown and his family which includes 4 wives (Including Meri Brown) and his 18 children.
The show had 15 seasons, which started from 2010 to 2018. The show earned many fans and many of them curious minds who wanted to know the life of a polygamist. Well, what we are concerned about here is Meri’s weight loss in recent years. She appeared recently with a completely new look and made her fans wonder. Let’s find out how she did that.
When did Meri start her weight loss journey?
Circumstances suggest that Meri started her weight loss journey after she broke up with Kody. I would not like to comment on these personal issues but it is apparent that her divorce was her motivation for weight loss. Meri was asked once in an interview about her weight, she answered “I knew I had to do it. I was figuring out how. Because my weight was becoming problem for me in many things”. She used the help of many motivational quotes in her journey as well. She posted a quote on her Instagram post, which said “A strong woman looks a challenge in the eye and gives it a wink”.
How did She Lose her Weight?
Meri lost her weight gradually through well-organized workout plan. Meri followed a very slow workout plan. As she once responded to a question “I feel very exhausted after workout of an hour that is why I don’t do workout more than an hour.” Meri also had various problems with her diet plan. She admitted once as “I don’t have much control over myself and I feel bad about it. I feel guilty about it.” She said “I try to control myself as much as I can but then I forget that I am on a diet plan and do something bad.” However, she overcame these troubles and proved herself to be the true inspiration for others.
Her posted quote about Women’s strength tells us that she believed in herself and she did it.
Meri’s diet plan was mainly composed on light food. Following is the proper routine of her diet plan:
Meri would wake early in the morning at 5 O’clock. After waking up early she would go to jogging and then from there go to gym. After spending an hour there Meri would come home and eat breakfast. Her breakfast consisted on salad. In drink she would had either Green Tea or Gorge Juice.
Meri’s lunch would be consisted on vegetables rich in protein, vitamin and fiber. The vegetables would be fried in olive oil. She also had target to drink 100 ounces of water a day which Meri described as “something hard”.
For dinner Meri would eat chicken and sometimes fish which also would be fried in olive oil. Meri said in one of her Instagram post that she loves sleeping early in night and waking early in the morning.
Meri spend an hour every day in the gym though her workout had not limited to gym only. She is big fan of Yoga and practices it herself. In gym her main focus is on cycling since it helps you in burning off your calories and energy and causes a lot of sweeting. When asked about her workout, Meri answered “I try to wake up early in the morning and this is my first task of the day, after it I hit gym and try to work hard as I can”. Her co gymnastics have said that Meri also does some weight lifting and punching.

How much Weight did Meri lose?
We have tried very hard to reach the information about Meri’s weight loss journey as she keeps most of her personal life secret. Paparazzi do not seem to be successful in capturing her personal life. We do not know exactly how much weight she has lost on this journey. However, a fine estimate would be 13 to 15 pounds. Meri has worked so much hard and has proved that no matter what if a woman commits herself to achieve her goal there is nothing on this planet that will hinder her path. And I agree with her.
Where is Mari is now in her weight loss journey?
Mari has continued her workout and diet plan till this day though in a lesser degree. She is busy in her everyday life and gives motivation to others who are struggling with their overweight. Truly she is an inspiration.
Before and After
By looking at both photos one can point out the difference. In the first photo, she looks different and overweighed. However, the second photo tells a different story. Meri once said in an interview “Being fit and fine is one of my dreams and I have achieved it after long hard work. My body is now in my control”. Meri’s workout is the inspiration for every woman not only for young ones but for everyone. She proved that with a healthy diet you can achieve what seems rather impossible.
Comments on her Weight loss Journey
So far, Mari is happy with her performance and her achievement. She said about her journey as “I know it was hard nevertheless I continued doing it and I did what seemed rather impossible.” We hope that Mari’s story will help you in overcoming your weight and will inspire you. Thank you
